CSI Chicago: Special Cat Edition

Eyewitness statement from Kate Sterling:

I was in the kitchen getting some water when Macy the Cat walked in. I looked down and saw her ears bleeding profusely. Alarmed, I picked her up to see what happened and noticed it was paint and not blood. I ran into the dining room where I saw that they'd knocked over several things on the table, including a big bottle of red paint, which had spilled all over the chair and floor.

I had to hurry and clean up the paint before it dried, so I couldn't get a picture of it. Then I noticed red paw prints all over the hallway, so I grabbed Macy and washed her paws in the kitchen sink. I tried to get her ears clean, but it wouldn't all come off.

When I returned to the hall to see where else she had walked, I saw red prints on the white living room carpet.

Macy took advantage of my brief absence by attacking the garbage.

Frisky was nearby watching the whole thing, but refused to comment other than, "I didn't do it."

Frisky maintains that she had nothing to do with the crime and that all evidence which would suggest otherwise is clearly circumstantial.

Families of the victims are asking jurors for the maximum penalty of imprisonment during crafting days, since evidence has show Macy to be a hardened criminal incapable of rehabilitation. Macy's attorney maintains that a thorough investigation will prove she was framed, and that Frisky actually committed the crimes in question.


  1. I love this! I wouldn't be surprised if Macy and Frisky planned the paint spill to get you out of the kitchen. They were obviously in this together.

    Great pictures!

  2. It looks like you've solved the crime. Unless Macy was framed.

  3. Macy is innocent. The paint on the ear was planted purposely by that felonious feline Frisky.

    As the court appointed attorney for Macy the Innocent I will prove, similar to the O. J. Simpson case, the DNA chain of evidence has been severely compromised by foot traffic obscuring the paw traffic.

    See you in court,

    Midnight, the Cat.


  4. Anonymous - are you going with the old "If the collar don't fit, you must acquit" defense? :)

  5. This looks like a case for Sam Scoop!

  6. OMG...My sympathies! (BTW, I love the "lineup" shot. Classic!)

  7. Anon - yes, get Sam on the case!

    Lana - thanks, though I can't take full credit for the lineup shot. I saw something similar on Edie's blog (cat lineup.) :)


Say what you will...
